Moustalevria (Grape Wine Pudding)

Recipe by MirandaLee
READY IN: 45mins


  • 8
    cups mousto (wine must)
  • 1
    cup semolina or 1 cup flour
  • 14
    cup wood ash (no kidding)


  • Bring the mousto to a boil.
  • Place the ash in a cheese cloth and tie it.
  • Place the sealed cheese cloth in with the boiling mousto for 10 minutes.
  • This is done to reduce the bitterness of the wine.
  • If the mousto begins to froth, scoop it off the top and discard.
  • Let the mousto sit and then strain once the residue has settled to the bottom.
  • Remove the ash.
  • Taste the mousto and if it is not sweet enough add sugar to your discretion.
  • Let it continue to boil for an additional 30 minutes.
  • Then let the mousto sit until it has cooled and throw in the semolina or flour and beat with a wooden spoon.
  • Place the mousto in plates and let it set.
  • Garnish with chopped almonds or walnuts and sprinkle sesame seeds and cinnamon.
